Tenants in a bank of courtyard-style apartment complexes across from Poe Elementary School at the northwest corner of North Blvd. and Hazard St. have received notices that their structures have been sold and will be demolished, so that the buyer can build single-family dwellings in their place. “I know one tenant has a lease until May 2013,” a source tells Swamplot, “but they are offering free rent for Sep/Oct if the tenant agrees to vacate by Nov 1.” Another tipster claims the buyer is Lovett Homes, and that the homebuilder plans to build 6 new “very high end” homes on the property.
The soon-to-be-vanquished addresses are 5010 Hazard, and 2006, 2010, 2012, 2016, and 2024 North Blvd. The buildings range in style from
post- pre-war mod to Asbestos Shingle Style. They’re flanked by a few more brick apartment buildings.
